Students completing grades 3, 4, and 5 who will be enrolled in Jackson Local during the 22-23 school year will bring home their devices, cases, and chargers for the summer. Please help your child keep track of these materials. As a rule of thumb, the computer should ALWAYS stay in its case.

Summer Technology Resources

Parents have asked about the summer availability of the technology resources that your child utilized throughout the school year. Polaris will become inaccessible once school ends. However, Clever will be available until June 30. Most students are quite comfortable accessing the digital resources their teachers have linked in Clever. Below are the subscription resources your child can continue to access throughout the summer.
